Parkinson’s Care and Support UK is the only UK charity which focuses on Holistic Health, Wellness, Care, Complementary and Alternative treatments and therapies to improve life with Parkinson’s and to help you live better for longer.
Although we fund non-pharmaceutical research into how we can slow down, reverse or even prevent the onset of Parkinson’s, we are mindful that thousands of people living with the condition need support today. This charity is all about positivity and being proactive about health and wellbeing. People with Parkinson’s do not need pity or sympathy. They need to be understood, given clear and unbiased information, services and care that will enable life to be lived to the fullest.
Parkinson’s is a combination of symptoms and ailments in which no two people have the same experience. This is why there are many ways to treat Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s Care and Support UK does not believe in simply masking symptoms with medications. We believe that in order to live your best life to the fullest, a multifaceted approach is needed and therefore a holistic healthcare plan should be in place for every person with Parkinson’s from diagnosis to end of life.
